What is your favorite mode?

What is your favorite mode in ham radio? (you can pick as many as you like!)

  1. Continuous Wave Morse Cose (CW) traditional, old school and still way cool!

  2. Single Side Band (SSB) great for HF nets and conversation

  3. Frequency Modulated (FM) - perfect for our HTs, repeaters and vehicles!

  4. Amplitude Modulated (AM)- aaahh the warm glow of TUBES, and a lot of fun talking!

  5. FT-8- lots of QSOs and DX with just a little power required!

  6. DMR or D-Star- the fusion of the World Wide Web with Radio.... seems like fun to me!

  7. PSK-31- sort of like RTTY, with a small but great bunch of afficianados!

  8. RTTY- that great old mode, that used to send the news all over the world!

  9. Slow Scan TV- Yes indeed... sending pics over the radio!

  10. OTHER- There are a lot of others to list.... so which one appeals to YOU?

    My primary interest is contesting. Digital contesting with RTTY was my favorite for s long time, even if it wasn't my most operated mode (that was SSB). CW contesting is becoming s favorite of mine. I still have a microphone and will likely get on a few SSB contests from the house now that I am an antenna but primary focus will continue to be CW and digital.

    Clover is my favorite mode. Pactor is great too. Not too many ops though. I like have liked PSK31 since 2001.

    Brilliant idea, Martin, that way you won't bother anyone.

    CW, God's Own Digimode.
    I didn't select other because that would betray the weighting of my choice, but Feld Hell is a mode I like to do sometimes.
    Unfortunately, conditions were not yet good enough to join one of the Feld Hell sprints. Nonetheless, call CQ in Hell for an hour, and there will be the odd European ham answering.

    SSB, warm Summer nights, great propagation, long QSOs. Fond childhood memories I'm now reliving. I love Sideband !
